DFSR namespace file synchronization issue

Hi All,

I'm constantly having issues with my multi-server (10+ servers ) DFS Namespace replication (Win 2016).

The file backlog is always in the higher number like 500,000+ sometimes up to 1million+
Upon checking with the script, I can see the Staging Path Quota size is always smaller than the total sum of the top 32 Largest Files in each of the servers.

How can I make sure the DFS file servers always synchronized without constantly extending the Staging Path Quota size every day by 100GB?

Appendix:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/blogs/askds/common-dfsr-configuration-mistakes-and-oversights

Any suggestion and help would be greatly appreciated.

@DaisyZhou-MSFT , thank you for the confirmation.
I can see the Staging Path Quota GB is now 1000GB, and the total Top 32 largest file size is just below 800 GB.

Why there is still backlog?

Hello @EnterpriseArchitect

Does the backlog change or decrease in the time period after get off work?

If so, during working hours, maybe too many people editing and accessing the folders, which results in slower backlog consumption.

Hi @DaisyZhou-MSFT Yes, it becaomes higher during the business hours.
Looks like people editing thefiles at the same time on each branch offices. They also forgot to close or save the documents before leaving the office.
